Stonehaven crash: Police officers add to floral tributes to victims

Tributes are continuing to pour in for those who died in Wednesday's train crash near Stonehaven.

Driver Brett McCullough, 45, along with 58-year-old conductor Donald Dinnie, and 62-year-old passenger Christopher Stuchbury, lost their lives when the ScotRail service came off the tracks.

Investigators have confirmed it derailed after hitting a landslip.

Police officers who knew the staff members visited Aberdeen railway station today to add to the many floral tributes building up on the concourse:

Mr Stuchbury volunteered at NHS Grampian's Roxburghe House in Aberdeen in his spare time.

Mandy Urquhart, voluntary services manager, said: "Chris really was a man much loved by all who knew him. He was incredibly caring, fun-loving, genuine and kind.

"His compassion and understanding brought him through the doors of Roxburghe House nine years ago, to help others at their time of need.

"Since then he has become a familiar, and regular, face on the ward with his tea trolley and in our coffee bar. He brought comfort and a welcome distraction to patients, their families, our staff and volunteers in so many ways.

"We were absolutely privileged to work alongside him and will remember him with a smile and of the stories and the laughter we shared on so many Fridays. 

"Our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences are with his family, friends and colleagues at this incredibly difficult time."

Meanwhile Bryan Pithie from Montrose knew Mr Dinnie, from travelling on the route:
